This entire story was shot on an IPhone 5. Ok, so I also used a couple other pieces of equiptment.
 
One was a little tripod just to ensure steady shots. I also plugged in a microphone to it for crisper sound.
 
Oh and this was the best thing… a little wide angle lens the size of a quarter that just slides over the lens of the phone. It really helps in making your shots seem steady!
 

Below is a list of the little gadgets I used for this story:
 
Gorillapod… a little tripod that bends like Gumby. I found one at Best Buy for $19.99
 
Olloclip… a three in one wide angle lens that slips over the lens of the camera.  It’s the size of a quarter and houses a fish eye lens, wide angle lens, and a macro lens.  I found this little gizmo on Amazon for about $60.

A Steadicam Smoothee.
 
• I also used a simple I-Phone microphone connector. You can use any microphone on the other end for crisp sound, mainly for interviews and people talking. The microphone inside the I-Phone works great for any other sound like bands, sizzling grills, cats purring, and professional photographers grumbling.
